Sony Ericsson TM506 Review by CNET

By: T-Marco August 26th, 2008

The Sony Ericsson TM506 marks a couple of “firsts” for T-Mobile. Not only is it the first Sony Ericsson to land at T-Mobile in several years, but also it’s the carrier’s first 3G cell phone since it launched its 3G network in May. Though it doesn’t offer a streaming media experience or a wireless music store, it does have a pleasant array of features and decent performance in a likeable design. Also, it’s an appealing alternative to the carrier’s existing 3G models. The TM506 will launch sometime in September; pricing was not available at the time of this writing but it should be less than $100 with a contract.

Product summary

The good: The Sony Ericsson TM506 has a sleek, easy-to-use design with a brilliant display. Its functional feature set includes world 3G support, a camera, a music player, and Assisted GPS.

The bad: The Sony Ericsson TM506′s external display is small with limited functionality. It supports only three GSM bands and the speakerphone quality is mediocre.

The bottom line: The Sony Ericsson TM506 has a couple of faults, but it’s broad 3G support and integrated GPS makes it a welcome addition to T-Mobile’s lineup.

Specifications: Band / mode: GSM 850/1800/1900 (Triband); Talk time: Up to 420 min; Combined with: With digital camera

    I personally am not a big fan of Cnet reviews. I personally think this will be a great phone, and sell very well.

    I like the fact that I can use this phone as a Modem for my laptop.
    Its a good little phone with lots of features.
    The camera works great.
    Navigating the settings can be a little tricky at first.
    The MP3 feature isn’t very good and the front screen doesn’t show the time unless you open it up first.
    Overall I like this phone but its not without faults

    You have to hit the volume toggle key on the side to get time and status display to show on the front. Not necessary to open the phone first.
